  • Milestone changed from 3.0.3 to 3.0.4

It's possible. But you'll need to edit manually the file /tmp/i-want-my-lvm to adjust the fixed sizes mentioned in it, and also adapt the size either in the mountlist or interactively.

Depending on your HW drivers may also be different and thus your LVM setup may fail. Without logfile difficult to help more. Please look at the supoprt page on our Web site for advises on how to report errors.
